Fashion Rules: Elizabeth, Margaret, Diana - Kensington Palace

Exhibition preview

FASHION Rules: Elizabeth, Margaret, Diana, a new exhibition featuring rare and exquisite dresses worn by HM Queen Elizabeth II, Princess Margaret and Diana, Princess of Wales, is now on display at Kensington Palace.

Elegant dress displays explore how the royal figures and fashions were representative of the spirit of each decade, reflecting and inspiring everyday trends.

Starting with the young Queen Elizabeth in the 50s, the display looks at her evolving style and the way she incorporated the character of the age and the countries she visited in the clothes she wore.

In the 60s and 70s, the exhibition turns to Princess Margaret, the Queen’s younger sister, and explores how her style reflected the playful times of a modern era.

For the 80’s and 90’s, the spotlight falls on Diana, Princess of Wales. As one of the most photographed women in the world, Diana had a significant impact on British style and fashion that still endures in our memories of her today.

Surrounded by contemporary photography, film and music this colourful and exuberant exhibition provides visitors with a real sense of the times in which the clothes were worn and how they reflected and inspired everyday fashions, offering a nostalgic glance back at recent decades.

Adding value to the already acclaimed Victoria Revealed exhibition and the stunning King’s and Queen’s State Apartments, Fashion Rules: Elizabeth, Margaret, Diana ensures the full 300 years of royal history is brought spectacularly to life in this popular attraction.

The exhibition, included in Kensington Palace admission, continues until Summer 2015.
